Tasting- ASF, Palmela D.O.C. Red 2005

This winehouse is situated in peninsula de Setubal wine region, south of Lisbon. The winemaker used Cabernet Sauvignon and Castelão to make the blend. The wine had a lagar/inox vat fermentation with a 6 months aging in american oak barrels and another 6 months aging in bottle. The colour is dark and the nose shows a good complexity of aromas. A intense red fruit, typical from Castelão, some aromas from cabernet very mature and some barrel notes. On the palate the wine had fruit flavours with a strong mark of mature cabernet. The oak has a good balance in the wine. The finish is medium. The wine has a good relation Quality/Price. 5 €. 88 pts
